Stan Lee would tell Batman right now that Superman doesn’t bleed.
The famed Marvel Comics creator, whose credits include Spider-Man, The Avengers, and The Fantastic Four—made that much clear in a recent interview, where he made his pick in a Batman V. Superman skirmish.
When asked which DC Comics superhero would win in a fight, Lee responded, “Superman, I think.”
“He’s indestructible, he can do anything,” Lee elaborated to The Boston Herald. “And Batman relies on a few weapons…But if this were real--a fight between Superman and Batman--there’s no way that Batman could win."
But Lee did reveal that, given his loyalties to each character’s creators, he did feel torn on picking a winner.
“The creator of Batman, Bob Kane, was a good friend of mine, so he’d be unhappy with me saying that. But at the same time, Jerry Siegel, one of the creators of Superman, worked for me for a while. So I feel I have divided loyalties.”
Well, we’re glad Lee could put personal biases aside for a clear and logical answer.
